9th European Workshop on Equine Nutrition 2018, August 16 - 18, 2018 in Uppsala, Sweden
It is a pleasure to announce the 9th edition of the European Workshop on Equine Nutrition (EWEN) which will take place in Uppsala, Sweden, August 16-18, 2018. For more than a decade, this biannual meeting has been Europe's leading scientific event for bringing together specialists and experts in horse nutrition.
The workshop was initiated and organized for the first time in 2002 in Dijon by the research team of Veronique Julliand. In 2004, it was once more held in Dijon, this time under the umbrella of the European Working Group Nutrition set up by the Horse commission of the European Association for Animal Production (EAAP) today named European Federation of Animal Science. Then its tour of Europe began: Italy (2006), Finland (2008), United Kingdom (2010), Portugal (2012), Germany (2014) and then again Dijon (2016).
The founding aims of the workshop is to:
- bring together European and international equine nutrition scientists, to promote information and foster innovation.
- bring together not only scientists but also technical specialists, the horse industry and professional practitioners to facilitate scientific and technological transfer.
The title of EWEN 2018 is "Future Equine Nutrition" and we hope that the conference will inspire both researchers and the horse industry to create a knowledge based future with equine health and performance in focus. During the technical tour you will be inspired by professional forage producers, a Swedish specialty, and by top trainers and athletes, both human and horses!
We welcome you to the 9th edition of EWEN and Sweden, the most horse dense country in the EU!
